Flavia lives with her grandmother. At home, duties include helping in the kitchen and cleaning. Her grandmother is sometimes employed as a laborer. There are 3 children in the family.

As part of Compassion's ministry, Flavia participates in Bible class. She is also in primary school where her performance is average. Playing with dolls, bicycling and running are her favorite activities.

Your love and support will help Flavia to receive the assistance she needs to develop her potential. Please pray for her.
Flavia lives on the plains of Mustardinha, home to approximately 11,700 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, brick walls and tile roofs. The spoken language is Portuguese.

The regional diet consists of beans, bread and rice. Common health problems in this area include allergies, asthma, bronchitis, malnutrition and parasites. Most adults in Mustardinha are unemployed but some work as street vendors and earn the equivalent of $204 per month. This community needs literacy programs, increased salaries, employment opportunities and security.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Centro de Desenvolvimento Integral Vida V to provide Flavia with Bible teaching, hygiene education, health exams, nutritious food, recreational activities, special celebrations and English and reading workshops. Ninety percent of the children in this project are not attending school because they are underage. The center staff will also provide health education and evangelism for the parents or guardians of Flavia.
Encompassing the Amazon River basin, Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world in terms of landmass. The country occupies about half of the South American continent. About 90 percent of Brazilians live on 10 percent of the land, a 200-mile tropical zone bordering the Atlantic Ocean.

In addition to indigenous peoples, the country is home to Portuguese, Africans brought to Brazil as slaves and European and Asian groups that have settled there in the last century. The national language is Portuguese. Seventy percent of Brazilians are Catholic. Compassion works mainly in the northeastern and southeastern parts of Brazil. Like many of its South American neighbors, Brazil is struggling to balance the needs of its indigenous people with the desire to industrialize its nation.

Originally inhabited by indigenous people, Brazil was claimed by Portugal as a colony in 1500. Portuguese rule lasted until 1822, when the colony declared its independence and established an independent monarchy. The monarchy ruled until 1889, when Brazil became a republic. The new republic adopted a federative system of government, which it still maintains. Since 1995, when Fernando Henrique Cardoso became president, the country has seen a decline in the rate of inflation and has enjoyed sustained economic growth. Though economically ahead of many of its neighbors, Brazil struggles with high unemployment, a debt-ridden economy and rampant poverty.
